Many municipalities in the U.S. have enacted nuisance property ordinances, which can have harmful effects on victims of domestic violence. Although state fair housing laws, landlord-tenant statutes and other legal provisions may protect the housing rights of some survivors of domestic violence, these laws leave gaps that can threaten the housing security of many others.
